Tim Stout knows exactly when his Carson City-Crystal girls basketball team turned the season around.
“It was the fifth game of the season, against a good Lansing Catholic team. We went down 15-2 quickly, and I called a timeout,” said the first-year Eagles coach. “I talked to the girls and I told them, we can go in two directions — accept being average or we can continue to be better every day.”
The words from Stout were like magic from Merlin’s wand, as his team not only came back and beat Lansing Catholic 49-33, but the Eagles would cruise to a 17-game winning streak, finishing the season 18-2.
